Relevent or Irrelevant: Let the Ghetto Decide

Few things to de light your weekend… 

The Dog is Right

I have to be honest, I have always underestimated Dogpile. I mean, a decent meta search engine with good branding and a cute mascot. Certainly no gada.be ;-). But after seeing what they came up with here, I’m astonished. Ok, before you read a word more, go take it for yourself. Amazing is one word you’ll think of. To be honest, if I were the CEO of a company with something as interactive and ‘cool’ as that, I’d be proud as a peacock. Or should I say a dog? 😉 I do think this interactive little thing explains how different search engines are. If I were a typical user and saw this, Dogpile is where I’d go from now on.

 

See a secret… Share a secret…

According to Technorati, top 2 of all blogs is not Engadget or Scobleizer or Gizmodo or Kottke.org, but indeed a differnet little blog called PostSecret (24,000 links).

The idea: see a secret, post a secret. Yes, the blog is full of nasty little secrets, regardless of whether they’re true. You can post yours to:

PostSecret
13345 Copper Ridge Rd
Germantown, Maryland
USA 20874-3454

and hopefully see it on the blog. You can alse preorder the book here. I wonder if I should start a blog where people send in their opinions on the revolution of the web… 😉

Spot the Black Helicopter

The Register recently ran an interesting competition to "spot the black helicopter" in……..Google Earth. There are tens of winners (an 11 page article!) and each got a Black Helicopter t-shirt.

 There are many many interesting and puzzling ones, so do check it out when you get the chance.

 

That’s it for this week, hope to see you all next week.
